In 2008 the District Court of Helsinki ordered Nordea to compensate the investment losses with interest incurred to Åke and Leena Blomqvist. Nordea appealed the case to the Court of Appeal, which passed its judgment in June 2009. The Court of Appeal decided the case in favour of Nordea.
The Blomqvist couple appealed against the decision to the Supreme Court, which ended up assessing the case in the same manner as the Court of Appeal.
- It is regrettable that a case between a customer and Nordea had to be submitted to court hearings in the first place, and that it took this long. However, we are satisfied that the Supreme Court, too, decided to share Nordea’s view in the matter, says Director Lauri Hallberg from Nordea Life Assurance.
